Fall Foliage Wildlife Walk

Vermont’s lead moose biologist, Cedric Alexander, will lead the group at the vast Steam Mill Brook Wildlife Management Area. The Steam Mill Brook area contains a large expanse of unbroken forests and provides an important corridor for wildlife moving between the Worcester Mountain Range and the Northeast Kingdom. These lands have been managed to create young forest habitat that is critical for many species of wildlife, from chestnut-sided warblers to American woodcock to moose.

Alexander will lead the group through a variety of habitats to look for wildlife and sign, from flowery meadows to wetlands and young forests, talking about the importance of each to snowshoe hare and their predators, grouse, deer, moose, bear, and songbirds.
